Reply to "THE LCS THREAD - Post LCS Questions, Info and Updates HERE"

Seems like we'd need really inexpensive tags for each piece of rolling stock.  So maybe a version of the Sensor Track that is an RFID reader. I'm guessing passive RFID tags are probably cheaper than the IR gear on the Legacy locos, and would probably be easy for anyone, regardless of their tech-savvy level to add the tags to their cars.
 
Such a Sensor Track at the start of the stub could pass car in/car out information to an LCS app, which would then make your suggestion very doable.  I can imagine a great many other applications if we can get low-cost sensors on rolling stock.

Wonder if there is any chance of an enhancement that would retain the information as to what is on the stub.  Would be a very helpful feature for those with hidden track for storage, etc.  Perhaps an icon next to the stub that could be touched causing a table  to pop up showing what is currently residing on the stub with last in at the top and first in at the bottom.  Also, a summary table showing all the layout stubs with their respective equipment.  Seems to me this type of feature could lead to having dozens of sensor tracks on a layout vs a few.
